    Title:
    CP Framework v3.2 to v3.3 Migration Guide
    Content:

    Community,

    Realizing that there was a lack of documentation of going from CP v3.2 to v3.3, I have gathered a number of internal pieces of information and constructed a migration document that I hope will fit the bill.

    This document is version 1.0 and if there are any mistakes an/or discprencies, I will need to make changes and version the document. Additionally, there will be a CX answer in the knowledgebase shortly with the same document.

    Modified this post to remove the physical file attached and provide a link to the Customer Portal Migration Guide:  Framework Version 3.2 to Version 3.3

     

    Version:
    Customer Portal v3.2

    Yes. Agreed.

    What I am trying to accomplish is to get the all of people (customers) onto a minimal number of releases. Currently over 50% of customers that are on some version of CP3 are on version 3.2. Hopefully this document helps with the migrations.

      Thank you Willie for this work, I will take a look shortly and report anything 'strange'...smiley

      May be something we should start looking/adding is the migration from 3.2 -> 3.4 and 3.3 -> 3.4

      Thanks Willie, better late than never.

      ps Willie, as Oracle itself is promoting the AUP to staty up to date I guess you have to run harder to keep up to date as 3.3 is of course already pretty outdated and we all have to stay with the newest releases soon. wink

      We are still on legacy 2.0 version and in process of migrating. I am provided with doucmentation from 2.0 to 3.0, do you suggest going to higher version to stay current and minimize the effort later. 

      Or to migrate to 3.0 first as there would be lot? Please advise

      While I have not personally moved a site from CP2 to CP3 and then up the chain to CP3.6, I would be more apt to handle the whole thing at once - but that is me. I would rely on those who have actually taken that plunge.

      There is a jump from CP2 to CP3 and there is another from CP3.2 to CP3.3.

      One tactic I heard from customers is that with that large of a jump(s), It might be best to:

      1. First evaluate your existing site -- determine what you use and what you don't use
      2. Create a clean, new CP site (v3.6)
      3. Implement the features you want in that new site

      This is simply what I've heard. 
      I'll welcome others to chime in here.

      Hi Karuna,

      I agree with Willie, a clean site helps a great deal when migrating.

      Do you see options to select between different CP versions while migrating? I don't think you would get an option to select which version you want to migrate to. System would automatically select the latest framework based on the what version your site is on.

      Having said that, most of the steps mentioned in CP2 to CP3 migration document would still hold true for higher versions of CP3. You can just refer both documents to see if there are any major deviations in the steps.

      Hi Karuna,

      I Agree with Willie as well. When you are migrating, take the time to look at your site. Perhaps some things can be done better with newer versions (or perhaps better skills of yourself, many times after some years you would do things differently then your first projects). And it is best to just start with the reference files from 3.6.

      Note: Everything up to CP3.2 is already deprecated, so upgrading to 3.0 is not what you should be aiming for.

      Apart from that, I understand that your question is somehow related to migrating and CP versions, but please in the feature post this kind of questions in a seperate thread. Willie created this thread to sum up some tips and tricks and post a nice document. When you ask new questions you sort of take over the thread which was started by someone else. The "best answer" is already set to this thead which means the answer in this post was give, so from that respect it is not desired to ask newly questions from that point. So, I hope with our comments you can make a good choice to move on with your project, and next time perhaps raise a seperate question.

      Thanks Karuna, and good luck.

      Regards

      HI all just a quick question... we are migrating from CP3.2 to 3.3. 

      Do the changes to files in themes/standard/WidgetCSS also have to be applied to themes/mobile/WidgetCSS. 

      We are having some issues with display in mobile for the KeywordText and ProductCategorySearchFilter widgets.

      any help is appreciated

      thanks

      Rose

      Hi Rosemary,

      As you can see the last entry in this thread was in january, and the thread was sort of closed as a best answer was given.

      It would be good practice to ask your question in a new separate thread. Many people (like myself) only look into new "open" questions that have not yet a best answer, so if you post a new thread, you would get more response.

      When you do so, please try to be more specific, as "We are having some issues" is not clear to what the issue is. Perhaps share some code or make a screenshot of what you need and/or what you are facing with right now.

      Regards.

      Has anyone been able to find documentation from Oracle on migrating from v3.3 to 3.5 or higher? We are looking to 3.5 or 3.7 after we finish upgrading our version of the service cloud to 18A.

       

      Thank you
